Good and bad
16 September 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival. The first hour goes terribly slowly. You just keep asking yourself where the director is going. Some people in the audience just got up and left. When we finally know what the movie is about, it's a bit easier to understand. But the ending just leaves you as perplexed as you were at the beginning. Thank God the director was there for a Q&A at the end of her film. Without it, I would have felt robbed of two hours of my life. But her comments helped me understand the meaning of a few scenes, including the last. This is a movie full of symbolism. One thing's for sure, the movie truly speaks about an ugly phenomenon in our world: human trafficking.

The movie might have a terribly slow pace and some strange scenes (à la David Lynch), one aspect we can't complain about is the photography. It's just superb. Some camera shots are just breathtaking. The music is also good.

Seen at the Varsity, during the Toronto International Film Festival, on September 16th, 2006.

77/100 (**½)
